New Modular Soundtrack Album

Hi everyone, long time no see! I scored a podcast in 2020 with a Eurorack rig (for the most part) using mostly generative or semi-self-playing patches (with some traditionally played and composed pieces). Out of ten hours (!!) of music, I made a continuously-mixed soundtrack album of just the highli...

Mastering for Hainbach

Hainbach was very kind to not only ask me to master his latest album ( more about my mastering services ), but he also asked me for some information on my process and rationale (he's vlogging his whole start-to-finish creation process). Vinyl is coming, but it's out now, and he made this lovely litt...

Re: The Ciat-Lonbarde Family Jams

DivKid and I discuss my live setup with mostly Ciat Lonbarde instruments, intercut with a quick jam.

Nathan Moody - Lazulum LP

A sequel of sorts to my Études I: Blue Box record from three years ago. But this time, longer, slower, more intense, and two to three layers of parallel distortion at once. Otherwise, the instrument has been unchanged. Out now on Modularfield.

Yeah that's really good! Looks like a video for the indie game Machinarium . Are you involved in game design? Thank you.

Thank you. Just checked the session file: Three layers, each through an Eventide Space. Layer two is in full force around 28 seconds, layer three starts firmly at 01:36. No effects in the box besides EQ and compression.

Re-amping w/Micro-Amps

This technique is nothing new, but I finally decided to try re-amping my own work through guitar amps. I was going for that sense of moving air pressure and tension more than distortion (but having both, of course is tasty). I wanted to share how quick and easy this was to do on a budget and in a ho...

Hi folks, it's been a while. Been busy with the wooden bits and had some things to share. First, I did a series of C-L focused improvised jams (with all manner of fun guest instruments) over on YouTube. Here's a playlist of the 14 sessions. Here's one example: [video]http://youtu.be/2xHUX_PtnHI[/vid...

Definitely cut the lows on tracks that are not contributing to the bass or kick duties, good advice. If you can't afford a subwoofer, monitor through a frequency analyzer, like the free Voxengo SPAN. You'll be able to see the energies you may not actually hear.

I was having a discussion with a friend with a graduate degree in music composition about how we each start pieces, and to my surprise, we did the same thing: Noodle, find a riff or progression, decide that's the direction. Then "back it into a key." Sometimes that means changing a note in the origi...

Besides character preamps outboard, I have an unreasonable love for the ugly and brutal DevilLoc Deluxe by SoundToys. I never imagined I'd use as much as I do. The key is parallel mixing of its effect, but it's a harmonic enhancer, distortion box, compressor, even a tilt EQ. I certainly don't put it...
